    Pros

    Great problems to work on that matter to people's quality of life.
    Very little politics, people are mission focused
    The division really is on the cutting edge of Spinal Cord Stimulation for pain management, and Deep Brain Stimulation for movement disorders.

    Rigid pay scheme, raises barely match inflation

    I worked at Boston Scientific (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - The division has some good cultural values/goals, like a fun, innovative work place
    - Halloween is fun

    Cons

    - In practice, the division fails to deliver on the stated cultural values
    - A lot of negativity, particularly from the project management office
    - Former engineers who were promoted to managers comprise a significant portion of the leadership team. As a result, there isn't much management competency or true leadership.
    - Star performers aren't valued and inevitably leave due to lack of opportunity and poor management

    Advice to Management

    Retain the best employees. To retain employees, keep them happy, don't overwork them, and pay them more money. The best employees have options and will leave seeking better opportunities.

    Pros

    Boston Scientific has better perks, benefits, and recognition than my previous company. They are big on work life flexibility and they do respect it.

    Cons

    Finding a con for this company is difficult. Communication between groups are lacking and that vacation time is used for two shutdowns (forced to use vacation).

    Advice to Management

    Keep your people happy and output / moral will grow.
